    Hi i'm having a real dilemma on what games to buy, coz I have a maximum of 20 dollars ATM.

    My preferred games are
    SOul Trapper(it's at discount atm)
    BIA
    HOS
    Monopoly
    Guitar Rock Tour
    Touchgrind etc etc

    are these games any good?? And which one is better-BIA/HOS??
    and how would i best utilise 20 dollars?do you think there'd be any sale on BIA/HOS at Christmas??

    Please reply fast......need to start spending soon....can't resist the App Store anymore:D:D

    I would late a week longer if all that is all you have. Just to see how Rolando and Need for Speed turn out.

    Idont think according to reviews, press etc.. That you could go wrong with BIA.the only one I have on that list is TG I'm very happy with it as soon as I am near mcdonalds again I am getting BIA though.

    what is the reason for the hype behind Rolando?? I'm a begineer so don't know much. And how whould Touch Sports Tennis be??

    I'm reluctant to buy EA Games after reading unsatisfactory reviews about Spore and Monopoly.

    It is comparable to a good game to on PSP. I don't really know must about the game so I couldn't say for sure. But there are plenty of threads about the game. Let's not make this another one.

    right now id say take hero of sparta over brothers in arms because theres a little less lag, the story and levels are better, the controls are better, and the game to me is all together more fun. And if youre a fan of guitar hero or rock band then youll probly like guitar rock tour- im really enjoying this one its so much better than tap tap revenge and all those. You should chrck out fadtlane btw too, because the qualit of that game is just unbelievable

    FIrst of all don't wait around for NFS- It is due to be released after the holiday season

    I believe that HoS is better so get that and games under $3 so they can keep you entertained for a while

    It all depends on what you want. Pretty much every game out will have good/bad points ATM as the AppStore has only been around for about 6 months. Also peoples opinions vary a lot with gaming, you will never completely agree with someones idea of a game, so watch some gameplay vids, read some good reviews (this site is good for this) and see if you like them :).
    Personally I'm really liking TouchGrind, Brothers in Arms and (apart from the suspension on the bike) Bike of Die 2 (only two more levels in the standard pack left :D)
    However you will be spending a sh!t load more than 20 bucks on the store, so just go for the ones that you think you would like the most, play them til the end, then buy more :D (dollar apps are great too, buy up bulk of the "good ones" and then wait til you can spend more on the "bigger, better" expensive apps like BIA and HoS. TouchGrind is a good app in this respect also, cos it's like 5 bucks (I think) and has some casual replay value, if you like the game.. really, any app is a bit of a gamble value wise because if you ever get a crappy one, you can't stop thinking of all the others you could have got :p.
    Well anyway, good luck with your purchases and welcome to iLife.

    thanks everyone.

    I've spent only $11.5 till now(RF09, Nanosaur 2, ENigmo, Moto Chaser) and probably will have to use more than $20, especially if NFS and Sim City are good and Gameloft releases even better games.@paulio, thanks, the link isn't working though.
